Pennywise

It is one of my favorite books, and while the old movie isn’t great, I love it. The kid half is good but when it’s the adults it kinda falls apart. I’m definitely looking forward to the new one, I’m interested to see what they can do with an r rating and a budget.

Nikki Cross

Nikki is the person I’m most interested in from Sanity. I think her feud with Ruby Riot is gonna be pretty fun. Most of her matches have been pretty short, so I’m interested to see how she is when the matches go for more than a minute or two…I’ve heard about her before, but I don’t know much of her work. Looking forward to it!

Tye Dillinger

Well it was a long time coming, but Tye Dillinger finally made it to the main roster. My thoughts on him are the same as before…I think he’s a really talented dude, I just wish they would do something to develop his character beyond saying ten. I think putting him on Smackdown was the right choice, I’m hoping he gets a solid push.

Waylon Mercy

There’s not many characters I wish got a better shot than Waylon Mercy. As a kid I remember being super interested in him, but I didn’t know his knees were shot and he wouldn’t last long. I didn’t know he was based on Max Cady, I only learned that later on. Having seen Cape Fear now, it’s even more of a shame he didn’t last.

Katsuyori Shibata

I really hope the stuff about Shibata’s injuries aren’t real…it would be a super scummy move on NJPW’s part, but it’s a better alternative than thinking his life is fucked up for good. If there’s any sort of silver lining, it might get some of the guys to tone down the crazy dangerous stuff a bit. I know partĀ of the appeal of New Japan is that they hit hard, but there’s a line between entertaining and dangerous they should look at.

Crazy of me, I like to see wrestlers live long, happy lives.
